Researchers at MIT have developed an algorithm that has learned how to predict sound. This could lead to better sound effects for film and television and help robots understand how objects sounding them interact with the world.
“When you run your finger across a wine glass, the sound it makes reflects how much liquid is in it,” says CSAIL PhD student Andrew Owens, who was lead author on an upcoming paper describing the work. “An algorithm that simulates such sounds can reveal key information about objects’ shapes and material types, as well as the force and motion of their interactions with the world.”
